  • A few years old now, but definitely worth watching at least once. Fairuza does a great job playing Nancy.

  • Before horror movies dumbed down again to the routine of the psychopath murderers, this was such a breath of fresh air. Most girls don´t like it, but I can´t say the same for the guys. Enjoy.

  • Top movie about witchcraft. Best one I have seen for a while & I have watched it a few times now..

  • This film about witchcraft is brillantly made. A teenager called Sarah moves to a new school and home and is taken in by 3 of the most unpopuar girls in the school that are branded witches by the so called cool crowd. The girls need a 4th to complete a circle and Sarah displays inner powers so they accept her with open arms. They play with magic for personal gain but the leader of the group doesnt get her wish and takes things into darker terrtory making trouble for all. The acting is brillantly done by a stella cast and the direction fathfully and truthfully explores wican lore showing both sides of the coin about magic is nether good nor evil and that its the person who decides that not the magic. Top notch CGI effects and thou its light on the blood and gore theres enough special effects to make up for that. The film ends on a satisfying note. Def recommended to horror and fans of shows like Charmed which explored the concept even more 2 years after this was made.

  • It pre-dated the late 90's horror explosion supposedly started by SCREAM and remains one of the most watchable teen horror movies ever made. Also Fairuza Balk is the definitive creepy goth chick for all time in this movie. Great cast, smart script and a killer soundtrack. THE CRAFT is a classic of its kind.
